Honduras have lost both their Group E matches and are already out of the World Cup, while Switzerland can still make it to the Round of 16 if they better the result Ecuador muster against France. But coming into this one after suffering a humiliating 5-2 defeat to France (which could have been much worse!) will not do wonders for confidence levels in the Swiss squad. So which side will seize the initiative in the heat and humidity of Manaus on Wednesday? Read on for our thoughts on the matter along with the latest betting tips and odds comparison.

Honduras went down 2-1 to Ecuador on Friday and with that defeat went any faint hopes the players had of progressing to the next round at Brazil 2014. They were always going to be up against it, and though they put in a reasonable performance against Ecuador, the Central Americans simply don’t have the quality to compete at this level.

Switzerland are the seeded side in this group, but they looked like the whipping boys as France tore them apart on Friday. That defeat will have taken a lot out of the players and we have the sneaking suspicion Ottmar Hitzfeld’s men will find things very difficult in Manaus despite being the 1/2 favourites with Ladbrokes. For our betting tip we’re going to go out on a limb and back Honduras – who are well used to playing in tropical conditions – to be victorious at massive betting odds of 8/1 with Bet365.
